The Ninja perk grants you the power of the fabled shadow warriors. When attacking, you gain a +15% critical chance on all Melee and Unarmed attacks. Additionally, Sneak attack criticals do 25% more damage than normal.— In-game description

Ninja is a perk in Fallout: New Vegas.

Effects

When attacking, one gains a +15% critical chance on all Melee and Unarmed attacks. Also, Sneak attack criticals do 25% more damage than normal.

Notes

  • To attain this perk, only an 80 Melee Weapons skill is required, even though the perk affects the critical bonus and sneak damage of both Unarmed and Melee Weapons.
  • In Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas, the extra 25% Sneak Attack Critical damage only applies to melee and unarmed attacks.

PCPC Playstation 3Playstation 3 Xbox 360Xbox 360 Ninja multiplies your critical chance by 1.15 instead of adding a flat 15%, unlike all other perks/traits that modify critical chance. For example, a character with a critical hit chance of even 25% would have it be increased to only 28.5% rather than to 40% as it should. (25% * 1.15 = 28.75% vs 25% + 15% = 40%) [verified]
